The acoustics of architecture is a combination of architecture, interior design, applied physics, mechanical and structural engineering and common sense. The best acoustic designers have a basic grasp of all these disciplines. Steven J Thorburn uses his experience as a project manager and consultant on over 1800 different projects to provide an outline of to those basic, yet essential principles in an understandable way - demystifying the industry jargon and presenting practical advice to bear in mind when designing. Case studies of 'what not to do' as well as 'what to do' will be provided, along with copious illustrations, to help the reader learn from the experience of others. * Clear, accessible introduction to the basic principles of acoustics *Real life case studies show successes and failures in acoustic design * Packed with illustrations for ease of reference and understanding
